Jona's story

“Do your best to succeed” is a word of encouragement shared by Mrs. Jona J., a loving wife of Mr. Edgar J. Sr. They live happily with their three children at Brgy. Poblacion, Diadi, Nueva Vizcaya. Being a parent, they have a great ambition for their children; they want them to become successful someday so that they will be the ones to help them when they get older. Despite the hardships and difficulties in life, they are striving hard to earn a living and support the children's education.

Due to lack of job opportunities, they help each other cultivate their farm lots by planting rice, vegetables and fruit. Furthermore, Mrs. Jona sells groceries, fruits and vegetables in their village. Since she has a small amount of capital, she can only acquire a few items and can only earn a small income. Due to high cost of commodities and school expenditures, she needs to earn more income to meet their daily needs. Hence, she wants to borrow PHP5,000 additional capital from KIVA lenders to acquire additional items for her business. She hopes that with this financial assistance, she can improve her business and increase her income to support the schooling of their children.
